From Reliques of the Rives:
Colonel James Ryves was baptized at Ewerne Courtney, or Shroton on August 22, 1568. He was probably attracted to Ireland by the successful careers there of his younger brothers, Sir William and Sir Thomas Ryves, the last named appear ing to have been the first to settle in that kingdom.

Colonel James Ryves was a resident of Munster as early as 1625, at the time of the matriculation of his son, James, at Oxford. Other than the mention of him by his father in his will (1587), who be queathed him £ 100 along with his younger brothers, and the mention of him in the inq. p. m. of his brother, Sir John Ryves (supra), the scant record that remains is that abstracted from Hutchins, who notes him as the son of John Ryves, of Damory Court, and of "Carrignafely, co. Kerry, ob. 1640."

His marriage to Alson Spring, daughter of Captain Thomas Spring, is recorded also by Hutchins,
